Berlin, the thriving, active, young, trendy, business and art centre, has become one of Europe’s new favourite cities. I have just returned from a fast visit and was lucky enough to stay in one of our Berlin Collection apartments. If you long for both the spacious and the gracious, and you like your Old World Charm adapted into a modern idiom, then an apartment from the Berlin collection is for you!
There is a selection of 1, 2, and 3 bedroom apartments, sleeping from 1 to 5 people. They offer the best of Hotel and of Home living combined into one. There is not only a spacious bedroom, and I mean spacious, with sky high ceilings (over 4 meters) and sky high windows to let in lots of light, but also a full kitchen with all major appliances, including an American-sized fridge, a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. There is even a Nespresso machine for first-class coffee making. Then there is a dining area, suitable to the number of bedrooms, and a comfortable and refined living room.
These apartments are perfect for families traveling together but also great for business travel. They even offer large enough tables for a working meeting. The bathrooms offer large soaking tubs as well as large walk-in showers. Again there is sense of immense space, comparable to the best suites in a 5 star hotel.
The three bedroom apartment has an entire separate dining room with a table that seats at least 8. This makes it perfect for a festive event, and if you are a large group, you can still take two apartments and dine together.
What I also liked:
- My bed was king-sized and the mattress was perfect. German-style duvets; in a double bed, each has his/her individual duvet
- Bathroom Spa Amenities so no need to bring your soaps, shampoos, or body lotion
- A Safe big enough for my computer
- Large silver mirrors everywhere
- Stylish Chandeliers
- Glass elevators
- There is a Roof-top terrace with a beautiful view, and a little garden in the entry court
- Plenty of Parking if you drive
And best of all, these wonderful apartments are managed and hosted by Nisha and Raphael, who are onsite during the day, and on call at night, to answer your questions or solve any problems.
I wasn’t there long, but had dinner at an excellent fish restaurant, called Munch’s. It was a Norwegian restaurant a few minutes’ walk away, and so named for the artist of “The Scream” of course (though everyone there was quiet and no one screamed). The fish was fresh and delicately cooked and the salads plentiful and creative.
The Berlin Collection is on Winterfeldstrasse in the Schöneberg area with good public transportation. You can’t do better in Berlin for comfort and quality at a reasonable price ! You can book directly on our Commendable Rentals site.
